Rick Gerhardt :: Are mutations sufficient to facilitate macro-evolution?

  • Genetic mutations have been broadly speculated as a support for macroevolution, but it seems this is not the case at all. Rick Gerhardt, Biologist and Christian Apologist, explains that for every rare beneficial mutation, there are thousands of negative, infertile, or even deadly ones. “Our understanding of what’s going on bio-chemically, genetically in the protein world has been revolutionized in the last few decades.” While we see how rare genetic mutations have lent a hand in the medical field over the course of generations, “genes in bio-chemistry are so similar universally across the spectrum of all living things that mutations have nothing to say to us about what makes a horse different than a fly.”
